- v. Present participle of transume.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Research shows that when the product remains with the manufacturer, there is an incentive to produce more durable goods, as transuming puts the brakes on the shop-to-landfill consumerist cycle.
The clever bit: It's consumerism, but not as we know it, because when transuming you pay for the service rather than the actual product.
